    suggestions on the sliders? should I keep them or ditch them?

    anyone else notice the rear is a little lower than the front? should I go for something higher than a 1" shackle?

    You don't? Check again.

    Ha. Then I would be way too high in the rear. I think Ill pick up a 1.25" shackle to replace the 1".

    ok now the pictures work with my home computer, truck looks great reminds me exactly of my truck back when it was stock....rims look great on the truck, should get the sliders painted maybe a glossy black and they would stand out more, either or looks good though. :thumbsup:

    Thanks again for the wheels man. Im loving the truck. I will need to paint the sliders. Either wanting to go with black or some type of spray on bed liner for them.
